Title: Allan Franklin, Shifting Standards: Experiments in Particle Physics in the Twentieth Century. Book Review

The book Shifting Standards is a valuable contribution to the literature on the history and philosophy of science and specifically to the philosophy of scientific experimentation, the discipline of which Allan Franklin is one of the outstanding scholars and founders. Here, the central focus of the book is the contemporary shift in the norms of representation of experimental results in particle physics as well as the increasing role and drawbacks of statistical standards of acceptance for those results.
